I have printed with the Ultrachrome prints on Epson papers since the inks came out and have had no issues with fading.  I often display bare (unframed) prints in my place.  Your issue may be due to the canvas and some reaction between the canvas and inks or just degradation of the canvas.  Print longevity is a function of both the inks and media.  If you have not already looked, you might do some research on the canvas media.

I agree, I think it is probably more to do with the canvass than the ink. Do you know anything about the origin of the canvass? Was a coating used on it or not, if so, do you know what was used?
